So, that will keep me inside today, scrambling to finish the ornaments for the upcoming Julieanna Holiday Teacup Exchange and Dessert Tea.
Am starting the morning with some loose leaf mint tea from Frontier, mixed with assorted dried mint from my gardens.
I chose a vintage mismatched teacup and saucer, that rarely leave the cabinet. I don't remember if they are thrift store finds, but this marriage seems to work- since they are both of vintage blue design.
I love the scalloped rim of the cup. The maker's mark on the underside is barely distinguishable -from Japan, most likely.
Here are the stacked pieces of the Julieanna ornaments that I am working on:
They WILL be done and delivered on Thursday!!!!
While waiting for paint to dry on the ornaments, I threw together these two little Christmas goodies:
Above is a canning jar "snow globe"
Two tiny trees, some batting, and a tiny Red Rose Tea English Wade snowman, with silver glitter for snow.
Below is a tiny Xmas mouse peeking out from under a tree- set in a vintage zinc canning jar lid.
Please drop by every Tuesday, rainy or not, for tea. Visit Patty and Kim for a list of other tea fanciers..
